Separatist Propaganda and Separatist National Parks?

Apparently, the Parti Quebecois seems to think that they have the monopoly on calling Jean Charest an idiot. Well, they are mistaken. I am beginning to believe that nobody wants Jean Charest to be in charge anymore.

Imagine Paul Martin firing Stephane Dion for not wanting to open up a national park for development. Or Harper firing Ambrose for the same reason. (Trying to make this thing non-partisan.)

Yes, what is the point of an environment minister who wants the province’s national parks to be cut down and turned into condos? I know, I agree.


However, the Super-Idiot award of the Week goes to Andre Boisclair who claimed that Charest was bulldozing Quebec’s sacred heritage and he was selling out Quebec to developers.

Hey André, federalists love nature too. Except we love all Canadian parks, not only those within the borders of the province. In fact, great Quebeckers have described Canada’s beauty, including Trudeau in his canoe in the Northwest Territories, or Jean Chretien, describing Canada’s national parks while flying overhead while he was the minister responsible.

See Andre, the environment isn't one of those things that ends at the bridge between Ottawa and Gatineau.

Orford is a park. It is a beautiful park. Charest isn’t “selling out Quebec.”

But if André Boisclair thinks only separatists wanna preserve Canada’s natural beauty, he must be smoking some really strong stuff.

It's obvious Boisclair doesn't think before he speaks, which will hopefully further weaken the PQ. However, I think it's abundantly clear that Charest is completely off the mark with this Orford situation, which further adds to his long list of stupidities.

The problem is who to support in the next provincial election? Boisclair, a blundering separatist (or sovereigntist, whatever), or Charest, a blundering federalist. Again, Quebec is faced with sub-par candidates who are obviously out of touch with regular Quebecers, whether separatist, federalist, or soft-nationalist.

Is Dumont a viable option? We have to wait and see. however, he is right-wing, which loses favor in Montreal. If he can move more to the centre, he might offer a true alternative to the PQ and PLQ.

Perhaps Charest can be pressured by Quebec Liberals to step down before the next election. He is obviously Harpers best buddy and never was really a Liberal. A win for Charest supports Harper in Quebec, but Liberals can't want a PQ victory either, so take down Charest.

Several days ago Charest applauded as Mulroney was called Canada's greenest Prime Minister. yep and Joe Clark was the most charismatic.

Every Liberal must tell Charest (as I have) that the decision to develop Orford is just plain dumb.

Cher Antonio,
Apparament t'as rien a chier du Français. Pourquoi venir nous niaiser si t'as rien a chier des Québécois ? Ta monarchie est pas assez grande ? Ils ne voulaient pas de toi eux non plus ? Tu hais les québécois tant pis pour toi. Mais on n'a pas a endurer des racistes dans ton genre. T'aime ta monarchie, vas-y. Personne ne va pleurer ton départ.

Dernier Anonymous,

Je suis certain qu'Antonio ne hait pas les québécois et québécoises, car il est un québécois . Alors, avant de proclamer qu'Antonio est un raciste, fait tes devoirs.

Un autre chose... pas tous les québécois et québécoises sont d'origine francaise, et beaucoup de ceux qui sont d'origine Francaise ont du sang Irlandaise, Anglaise, et Ameriendienne. Un bon 15-20% des québécois ont des origines autres que celle francaise.

Tes commentaires sont racistes, parce que sans le dire explicitement, vous avez dit que tous ceux qui sont des 'ethniques' ne sont pas des québécois, car seulement ceux et celles d'origine francaise sont des 'vrai' quebecois et quebecoises.

Je suis quebecois, d'origine italienne. Mes arriere-grandparents et grandparents sont venus ici pour commencer un nouvelle vie. La chose triste et que apres trois generations, je ne suis pas encore consideré un quebecois, mais toujours un ethnique, parmi les pires comme Parizeau et son gang xenophobe et raciste. J'espere que vous n'etes pas un.

You know it's interesting that you would criticize Antonio and call him racist for being a non ethnically "French" Quebec bilingual francophone/anglophone, maybe he even speaks Italian.

My family immigrated to Montreal in the early part of the 20th Century. They spoke Russian and Yiddish. When they moved to Quebec, they were taught English and sent to English schools.

Isn't that what the quiet revolution and bill 101 were all about? I should be a Francophone. I'm not.

By the way the French don't even call themselves French. They say things like, "I'm not French I'm Norman" or "I'm not French Lyonaise" or I'm not French I'm Alsacian" or "I'm not French I'm Corsican" Napolean was Corsican. France is made up of a whole lot of ethnically different peoples and they will let you know that.

Same in Spain, poeple are Catalonian or Basque, not Spanish aka Castillian. Germans routinely say that Barvarians are not German, or that they are from the Rhineland. Italy has Scicillians who are NOT Florentine. All the Calabrese I know don't ever want to go back to Italy because they were starving and treated very badly there.

If you are going to accuse someone of Rascism, perhaps you should know about the history of "race", aka ethinic origin and dominance in the original country to which you are referring.

PS. Should my father and two brothers who were born in Quebec get to vote in the next referendum or just ethnically "French" people?
